PhD Lab Coat Ceremony 2018
The PhD Lab Coat ceremony is a symbolic annual event that culminates the orientation activities for newly arrived PhD students. Each student is identified with his/her department and is coated with a personalized lab coat as a symbol of the start of their research/graduate studies in the biosciences. This event will take place on the last day of the biosciences school orientation for entering PhD students, features an alumni speaker, and family and friends of the students are welcome to attend.
